Soulka..... the meaning :
A word recorded by Jakob Jakobsen, the Faroese scholar who visited Orkney to collect words over a hundred years ago. It is listed in Gregor Lamb’s book ‘Hid kam intae words’, where the meaning is given as ‘the circle of the horizon as far as can be seen’. We have extended this meaning to include our cultural as well as geographical horizon.
